At Signature Smiles and Designing Smiles, we are proud to offer in-house crowns to our patients. Crowns are a great way to restore the health of your teeth and mouth. With the use of in-house crowns, we can better control the look, fit, and feel of your final restoration.
When you visit our office for in-house crowns, we will take precise impressions of your teeth to create a customized restoration for you. The tooth will be prepared and reshaped so that it is ready for restoration. A temporary crown will be placed over the tooth and the impressions will be sent to our custom laboratory for the permanent crown to be created. This custom-made crown will then be placed on your tooth when it is ready, ensuring a precise fit and pleasing appearance.
What Is an In-House Crown?
In-house crowns are customized dental restorations crafted in our labs. We offer two types of crowns: cast metal and porcelain fused to metal. Our custom dental lab features both traditional and CAD/CAM technology that allows for precise design, fabrication, and delivery of your in-house crowns in as little as one day.
What Is the Process for Getting In-House Crowns?
When you visit our office for in-house crowns, our dental team will create a precise impression of your tooth by taking an X-ray. We will send this impression to our lab so that it can be used as a guide for creating your customized crown.
We will then place a temporary restoration over the prepared tooth until your custom crown is ready. This temporary restoration will help protect your tooth while you wait for your permanent one to be made.
What Are the Benefits of In-House Crowns?
There are several benefits to getting in-house crowns, including:
- In-house crowns can be fitted in only one visit to our facility.
- They are more affordable than other types of restorations because they are fabricated in our office.
- They are more comfortable than other types of restorations because they are made to fit each patient's unique needs.
- They are more convenient because they can be fitted quickly in our office instead of being sent away for fabrication.
- In-house crowns are more durable than most types of restorations because they are manufactured with high-quality materials by our experienced team.
- They boast a long lifespan because they can be made with metal alloys that won't rust or tarnish over time.
- They offer excellent longevity because they are more resistant to wear and tear than other types of restorations like veneers or fillings.
- In-house crowns look just like natural teeth because they can be made with various colors, styles, and shapes to mimic natural teeth.
- They help preserve the strength of your teeth because they act as a support structure for weak or decayed teeth.
- In-house crowns help prevent future damage to your teeth because they cover damaged surfaces and reduce sensitivity like decay or breakage.
- They help keep your smile looking natural because they blend seamlessly with natural teeth for an undetectable appearance.
